Schenectady County Launches Online Event Form

Available for Catered Event Vendors and Organizers to Facilitate State Compliance

Schenectady County launched a new online form for vendors and event organizers who host catered events within the county. The form was created to help businesses comply with recent guidance released by the NYS Department of Health (DOH).

Local health departments, including Schenectady County Public Health Services (SCPHS), are charged with overseeing compliance. To fulfill the state’s mandate, SCPHS will require vendors and event organizers to fill out a form for each catered event they host at least 5 days in advance of that event per state guidance. All submitted forms will be reviewed, and SCPHS will only contact vendors if they need clarification or identify a potential issue.

“Schenectady County wants to make it as easy as possible for venues and organizers to host events that comply with the latest NYS coronavirus guidelines,” said Schenectady County Legislator Cathy Gatta. “Our online form is easy to access and fill out, so our businesses can spend more time doing what they do best – hosting events.”
